The “anointing” is the burden-removing, yoke-destroying power of God, and it is every Christian’s weapon against the devil and his works. When the anointing is on your life, your enemies are placed under your feet (Psalm 66:3; Psalm 110:1-7). To walk in this awesome power of God, love must be your foundation.
Many Believers want the power of God operating in their lives, but they aren’t willing to develop the character that is necessary to sustain that power. God’s character is love. Without love, the power of God won’t be there. The love of God is the source of His anointing.
Although Christians have mastered numerous biblical practices and principles, many have failed to realize that the love of God is the foundation of them all. Everything in the kingdom of God has its origin in the love laws. In Matthew 22:34-40, Jesus discusses these laws of love:
But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together. Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
These people had a religious understanding of God and they operated by the law, but they didn’t have a revelation of His love. Jesus set the record straight when He informed them that love is the basis for all the law and everything the prophets said. That’s why walking in love is the most important thing you can do.
Jesus’ compassion for people released the power of God to flow through Him to minister to their needs. Matthew 9:36 (AMP) says, “When He saw the throngs, He was moved with pity and sympathy for them, because they were bewildered (harassed and distressed and dejected and helpless), like sheep without a shepherd.” You, the Believer, have the same love of God inside you that Jesus had. When you receive Him as your Lord and Savior, your heart is infused with it (Romans 5:5).
The anointing is a divine enabling; it is God’s ability on your ability, enabling you to do what you couldn’t do on your own. In other words, we can be like God in spirit and power. This enabling power is an outflow of the Holy Spirit through human vessels. It is the anointing on your life that is responsible for your fulfillment, accomplishment and productivity. When you find yourself accomplishing things that you never dreamed you could accomplish, you will realize that God’s power is working through you!
In order to experience this kind of power, you must cultivate the love of God in your life. Galatians 5:22-24 lists the components of love that you must develop in order to truly walk in the spirit. Loving others isn’t an option; it is a commandment. Having the power of God in your life depends on your willingness to live a life of love. Make the decision today to tap into your Power Source!
